The Ninja team consists of two of the best figures original to Go!: Gekisoumaru and Hishoumaru; and the absolute worst of the line: Sensuimaru. Ganoh is still my favorite.

I'd say no, given their unorthodox price points and (really) Japanese styling.

Steep discount, you say? Got a link to where you got yours?ScottyP wrote:Ha, what funny timing! I got the Phoenix and the Shark last week. I enjoy them, but glad I got them on a steep discount. Will probably grab the Lion at some point too.

They've been on Amazon (all of the Go! figures) for dirt cheap for imports.

You can get them for less than US retail ($19 shipped for one of them, $22 shipped for the other, I just got an extra Kenzan for $30 shipped the other day from Amazon to fix the problem with mine having a broken pony tail from the factory ... urgh).

Guren Dragotron and Beast Fire Predaking both share the same mold, and come with Infernum Blades, accessories, as well as an impressive wingspan and electronics, but different decos, with red, black and yellow (and the name) replacing the orange, black and silver of the Predacons Rising figure in the Go! version. Optimus Prime, on the other hand, shows off an impressive cleaver sword, shield and rotating Firebreath Cyclocannons and electronics.

Interestingly enough, before Dragotron assumes this form, the episodes that came immediately before his awakening used the Beast Fire Predaking deco:

Gekisoumaru and Kenzan are the latest to step in front of the camera, but these two are the black repaint versions.
Clarification of the purpose of these remolds courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade:
Sabrblade wrote:These represent toy-only powered-up forms of the two, after having been enhanced by the powers of the Black Legendisc.
Kenzan was a TRU Japan exclusive repaint of Kenzan, and you can see the original here and Gekisoumaru is a Nemesis repaint of the original mold, which you can also see here.

Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.

Not to be missed, of course, are the smaller partners that give the name to the line, the Microns. War Breakdown comes with the rhino-hammer Zamu, while Silas Breakdown features mantis-like Magi, and bulked-up Swerve finds a companion in spinning blade saw Sou. Check all of them out by clicking on any of the images below!

Similarly, Knock Out was likewise renamed "Medic Knock Out" in that version.

I felt bad that I didn't get these galleries up before now. I started them back in 2013 (hence why the lighting is different in shots such as the vehicle mode and then the robot mode). I'm forcing myself to work through some of the backlog of half finished galleries so that that content can be viewed instead of sitting on my computer.
Currently trying to finish up 2 of the 3 Specialist sets that came out in Asia last year before Motormaster, Blackjack, Huffer, Drift, Deluxe Optimus, Hyper Change Optimus, Legion Grimlock and Legion Sideswipe all arrive tomorrow.

Look on the bright side: the paint apps would've been rat's ass anyway.
